Windows 7: BSOD when attempting to launch a game.

BSOD when attempting to launch a game.

Hi Everyone,

I just finished building a new, fully custom, high-end gaming rig and have come across only one problem. Whenever I attempt to run any of my games (some old, some brand new) or even ones on the internet, such as from I get a BSOD for IRQ_NOT_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL. Unsure why this is happening and given the circumstances, appears to have something to do with the graphics cards possibly? Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry about that, forgot to attach the info.

- Windows7 64 bit ?
- Custom machine, Windows 7 is the original OS.
- full retail version?

- System is less than 2 weeks old.
- OS installed after finishing building the system less than 2 weeks ago.

Sorry for the delay, was in a hurry to post and forgot to attach everything. Thanks in advance for your help.
